In the series “The Lady-Blog loves …” you will get to know your favorite parts of our wardrobe and their history.Whether new and expensive or old and worn out, whether designerware, homemade or off the shelf does not matter, the only criterion: We love it.This time, Sybille introduces your two-color vintage shoes by Eduard Meier, which she recently acquired and which she is very much in love with.
Two-color shoes have been doing it to me for a long time.They are elegant, but not everyday, and they remind me of the 1920s.Recently, I discovered a dreamy, blue and white vintage model by Eduard Meier on Ebay and promptly won.Founded in 1596 and headquartered in Munich, Germany, the company is one of the oldest German shoe stores and has been a royal Saxon and Bavarian court supplier. According to shoefrantics, in my new shoes, besides the bipartite, I am also inspired by the form: they are very feminine Mary-Janes.This shoe style, named after an American cartoon character by Richard Outcault , has been around since the 1920s.Mary-Janes were originally worn by children, but quickly found their way into the adult fashion world.
Two-tone shoes have been around for much longer.As early as the 19th century, the shoe known as “Spectator” was popular, but it also reached the height of its popularity in the 20s and 30s of the last century.As the name implies, two-tone shoes are made of two different colored upper skirts.Typically, lace and heel are dipped into dark and the rest of the shoe dipped into lighter tones.Popular color combinations are blue-white, black-white, white-red or even white-brown.My new vintage shoes I wear both Marlene pants and the (somewhat longer) skirt – the typical 20s look, which I love so much.
Do you own two-tone shoes? And how do you combine them?
